i have several questions and issues about friendship today.
i am a most giving person, always have been this way;. i share myself fully, totally with others. Often time, i share myself, and my friends are completely the opposite; for example, if i send them some pictures via the mail, they do not even comment, saying “what a nice picture”, If this was me, and a friend send a nice picture, i always would acknowledge this, and say at least a “thank you” and how nice to see. i find so many have no manners today, to even acknowledge anything; an invitation, a mail sent with enclosures, or pictures, or for this matter, anything. i find myself thinking how lack of etiquette many have today. i wonder do many others sense this total and complete lack of etiquette or are they merely the same as everybody? The way i was reared was wonderful i might say, having real etiquette and culture. Perhaps there are others not quite the same. Just now, this previous weekend, i send some pictures, no comment, only re themselves. i find this quite selfish indeed. i, for one, always want God to enable me to be attentive to others, as so many are not, it’s always about them. The Gospel and all readings today and yesterday were quite great.
